Greater Than Games announced today that it has acquired Cheapass Games. Greater Than Games is best known for the award winning Spirit Island and Sentinels of the Multiverse, while Cheapass Games is known for their low cost, black and white game (and more recently an upgraded version of Kill Dr. Lucky).
From their PR Spokesperson:
“The acquisition of Cheapass Games is the culmination of several years of friendship between the two companies. Cheapass Games has created richly-themed black and white games since its inception in 1996, with the introduction of full-color games, such as Tak, Kill Doctor Lucky and Unexploded Cows, in later years.
“I’m thrilled to have Greater Than Games take over publishing current and future Cheapass Games titles, and I look forward to working with them on a variety of projects,” said James Ernest, exiled leader of Cheapass Games.
As we undergo this transition, Greater Than Games looks forward to supporting the Cheapass Games product lines, demo staff, and fan base. “
